The Foundation envisions the Library as a cornerstone of our community’s high quality of life.


Welcome to the Bozeman Public Library Foundation!

The Foundation envisions the Library as a cornerstone of our community's high quality of life through exceptional visitor experiences and innovative programs. An active and successful Library Foundation turns a good library into a great library. The Bozeman Public Library is a GREAT library.

As 2014 wraps up, we’d like to thank all of you for another year of great programs, new and renewed friendships, and the inspiration you give us every day. We are thankful for the stellar Library staff who have the needs of the community at the heart of all they do and for the generosity of those who give of their precious time or hard-earned money to make the Library an even better place.

If you want to "talk libraries" please don't hesitate to chat with me, Paula (look left). I like nothing more than to talk about books, events for the community, and all the partnerships and collaborations that the Foundation fosters – I'd LOVE to talk with you! Stop by my office upstairs in the Library or call 582-2426.

Many opportunities and challenges lie ahead. The rapid pace of technological advances brings rapid change, but we believe public libraries will be at the forefront of this change, shaping and leading our communities. Please click on the link below to read the Library's long-term Strategic Plan to learn of our vision for the future.

Only libraries can offer free services, materials, and expertise to the communities they serve, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or financial status. Join with us in our mission of keeping our Library relevant and ready to be at the forefront of the 21st Century. 

Again, contact Foundation Director Paula K. Beswick with any questions, suggestions, donations (see button below), or ideas on how to get involved:
